Flashcard 15 - Test II Science Flashcard Set for the GACE

Back

The correct answer is:

lion


Explanation:

In this food chain, the grass is the producer, the rabbit is the primary consumer, the fox is the secondary consumer, the lion is the apex predator, and the fungi are the decomposers. The apex predator is the consumer at the top of a food chain, with no natural predators, and who is only consumed by decomposers after death. This returns nutrients to producers.
